FRS to DFS Sysvol
Wanted to run by a potential issue I had for upgrading the SYSVOL replication to DFS replication.
A few years ago we had our PDC running on Server 2003. We also had an AD/DNS server running 2012. I promoted the 2012 server to the PDC (and raised the domain function level to 2012) and a around a year later created a Server 2019 AD/DNS server. Before I could officially decommission the 2003 AD server it physically died and I did my best to manually go through and clear it out.
Currently the 2019 server cannot see the sysvol file properly. When I try to go to \\server2019 it shows that the folder is empty. When I go to \\domain.edu it initially shows as empty, but if I change it to \\domain.edu\sysvol it shows the files. On the 2012 server everything shows as fine. I'm assuming that this is because my 2019 server cannot support FRS correct? Just trying to eliminate any other underlying issues.

@Markferron Yes, Server 2019 does not support FRS, you need to migrate to DFSR and then it will work.
@dbeato Perfect, thanks.
